Hampton Lutheran School’s extracurricular activities are age appropriate and provide students with opportunities to share their talents with Hampton and surrounding communities.
Various field trips are scheduled for individual classes, rooms, and for the entire school throughout the year. These trips are viewed as educational extensions of the school program. We require all children to participate with the respective group in every field trip. It is necessary that permission slips be returned prior to each trip. Parents are often asked to help provide transportation, which is most appreciated. Teachers are responsible for the organization, discipline, and overall welfare of the students during the field trip. If academic and/or social goals have not been met, the teacher has the option to implement in-school suspension in place of the field trip.
Scheduled Field Trips
H.A.T.S. field trip to Stuhr Museum in Grand Island for third through sixth grade. Kindergarten through second grade goes on a pumpkin patch field trip.
Students in grades kindergarten through six receive two half-hour classes per week of general music instruction. Kindergarten and preschool students use music frequently in their learning process. Students in kindergarten through sixth grade also have the opportunity to participate in the HLS choir, which provides music for various activities including Advent and Lenten services at Zion and St. Peter, National Day of Prayer, Ladies Aid, and nursing homes. In the spring the students may also be part of the Gathering of the Talents choir, which participates in the Gathering of the Talents at Concordia University, Nebraska.
Students in fourth through sixth grades have the opportunity to be part of the M & M Puppeteers ministry at Hampton Lutheran School. The goals of the ministry are to proclaim salvation through Jesus Christ, strive for excellence, have fun, and develop a positive attitude toward ministry. The students meet to practice and work on programs most Friday afternoons. They share their faith through this ministry several times a year, locally (fourth through sixth graders) and sometimes out of town (fifth and sixth graders).
Students in fifth and sixth participate in band at the Hampton Public School on a voluntary basis. All schedules, cost, and other details are handled by the public school music director.
